He said chiefs and village heads should help flush out the extortionists. He said Government is concerned by the conduct of the tsikamutandas and is ready to go all out to protect the villagers from being fleeced.
“The law says it’s not allowed but they keep cropping up from time to time. And our duty is to protect the potential victims of these people and we must go out of our way to solve the problem. We have engaged various stakeholders and as we speak, we are on the ground,” he said.
Silobela chief, Chief Malisa, said the area had been under siege from the tsikamutandas but was quick to say they had taken strides in driving them out.
